Sending a Latte....

I'm sorry I missed posting a couple days ago.  Seems like the end of last week got real hectic.  I went to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico to get my teeth cleaned along with various other errands and did not get anything made to post!!  But I just got this card made for a swap on Technique Junkies 1-1.


I used our hostess gift called Floral Mug.  You can get this stamp FREE with a $100 net order.  It is a fairly large stamp.  The technique is a golden oldie to me called Crayon Resist.  I used glossy white paper for the base and a K-Pad called Calypso along with my brayer. The text at the bottom is from the set Sending a Latte...  Oh, I used Noir PH ink to stamp the images.



I tried to do a closeup so you can see the resist and the Stardust Clear Gel pen but glossy paper really reflects the light! Can you see the dots at the tops of the tulips, in the center of the daisy, and the lines in the leaves?  Well, they're there!  Just a hint of bling.  And do you like my bow at the top of the card?  I used the Bow Easy to make it. Boy, that is one cool tool!

Nice - this image looks super with this technique. Isn't it fun to do some of the "older" etchniques.
